2005-2006 I was moody, depressed, and had suicidal thoughts. I know now it was the SAD food that was killing me slowly, causing the breast cancer and all the mental problems.
May of 2006 I found a lump in my left breast it felt the size of a golf ball which frightened me because I just had a mammogram in Aug of 2005. Had the biopsy (two lymph nodes were cancerous also, cancer was triple negative) then pet scan, bone scan and muga scan to see if my heart was well enough to take Adriamycin a chemotherapeutic drug which can be toxic to the heart muscle, and can lead to heart failure. Had the chemo then surgery and radiation treatment started in 2007. I did change my diet to fish and salad for dinner, still ate all the junk foods and sodas. By 2010 my cholesterol was 320 and I was 170lbs, had heart palpitations, exhausted no energy at all, plus the radiation treatments left my whole left side painful to the touch. My Dr prescribed Zocor (for the high cholesterol) which gave me bad muscle aches and pains and along with the pain and soreness did not sleep well at all. I was scared that the cancer was going to come back or I was going to have a heart attack. My doctor (she is obese) and Oncologist (He told me I would always have pain because of the radiation) were no help when I voiced my concerns.
By 2011 Getting worse- moody, depression, suicidal thoughts, muscle aches (from the Zocor), the liver test results showed there was some beginning damage, pain from the radiation were more than I could take. I found the HFRV diet and was on that for about 5 mos then started feeling bad again. Found 30bananas, now on LFRV I feel much better, stopped taking Zocor (pain is gone now), pain in my left side is gone (can sleep now) and no more heart palpitations.
The cancer treatments left me with low bone density of 10%, all my hair did not grow back its very thin (I can see right thru and see my scalp), nausea every morning. I went thru chemopause as cancer patients call it and not regular menopause. Some people are concerned about the sugar in fruit, because they think it will feed cancer or bring it back, not true. Do your research its the high fat/protein/refined sugars/processed foods that cause and feed cancer. If I would have known about the Gerson diet/LFRV I would have taken that route and not listen to the my Dr's.
Please do not put yourself thru the traditional cancer treatments. It kills the good with the bad, so its kill your body just to kill the cancer. That's why you can't eat, sleep 24/7, it takes all you have just to a shower and can barely stand up to do that, it kills your WBC (not good). I was not able to be around anyone or go to the store because of fear of getting a cold, if I would have caught a cold it might turn into pneumonia, not good for someone with a dying immune system. I hope this is helpful.
